Eyebrows have a great impact upon our overall appearance of the face, thus highlighting our eyes and gathering all the attention on our look. Different trends have been popularized throughout the years and various products have been commercialized for enhancing our most treasured brows! From the gels to the powders to the brow mascara, nothing stands as strong as the classic brow pencil! Now available in different tones and colors, for brunettes, redheads and blondes, the palettes and pencils found on the market for eyebrow make-up are perhaps innumerable (yet within this article you will be given examples of some of the best out there).

  1. Bold, well-defined, “bushy” eyebrows


Bold eyebrows are lovable, inspiring youthfulness and attracting all the attention to the eyes. These brows are strong, well-defined (Chanel Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil, $29, chanel.com) and can be of various shapes. Whether entirely naturally groomed to be big or carefully constructed, they are always fresh and intriguing. Important keywords are dramatic, unique and bold. Tip: If you feel perky and Goth, try out Siouxsie Sioux’s envious eyebrow make-up, now try to use the VanityMakeup technique for filling in your eyebrows, is the one I recommend the most.

  1. Flawless, thin eyebrows  

Popularized by Greta Garbo and by movie actresses of the 193’s such as Jean Harlow and Lucille Ball, the exaggerated thin eyebrows are a renowned example of the dramatic look.


Mysterious and bizarre, often extreme (actresses sometimes shaved their eyebrows with Vaseline/petroleum jelly) for constructing them each time, thin eyebrows are breathtaking due to their complexity. The many designs for thin eyebrows have been shown on the catwalks and in the movies for decades and it simply takes a flip of the brush (Tom Ford Brow Sculptor. £35; available at www.selfridges.com) and a bit of courage to have your own!

    3. Natural, blonde eyebrows

Whether bleached, light brown, strawberry blonde or blonde, these eyebrows aren’t uncommon! Natural or chemically-treated, blonde eyebrows inspire uniqueness and youthfulness altogether (Chantecaille Brow Definer. £32; available at www.net-a-porter.com). Celebrities like Lady Gaga, Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson and Michelle Williams have all sported different types of blonde eyebrows, more or less natural. The aim was many times to set a statement and to appear glamorous.
